    The theme for September is now closed.
    The theme for October 2015 is
    Neighbours

    Post your images as replies to this post. (Make sure you’ve read the Guidelines first.)

    The theme of neighbours is open to your own interpretation . Not just the obvious neighbours in your street or the soap opra you may watch! Seek out how neighbouring objects interact with each other and show us how you understand their connection. Good shooting.

    Thanks for kicking off this month’s theme Ken. This photo certainly sticks to the theme of neighbours. The two engines are well defined and the shadows reveal thier shape.

    I know this photo is a bit blurred, but I just like the way the neighbouring swans are taking the on the same pose for me. It’s amazing what they’ll do for a peice of bread!

    I like the back lighting in the first photograph and the shadows help give it depth. The translucent leaves hold it together and would have liked to of seen the colour version, but would the colours have been over powering?

    Well spotted Ian for seeing the two same names in your second photograph. It must be very unusual for that to happen.

    Thanks very much, Peter. The colour version of the first one is just too busy – the forms and patterns get drowned out by the multiplicity of colours, and the colours don’t add anything pictorially.

    I spotted the second one a while ago, and remembered it when I saw this month’s theme. At first I puzzled over why they buried the same bloke twice, and then noticed the other details – the dates, the wive’s names – and twigged. But such neighbouring graves are, as you say, unusual.

    I have returned from holiday with one or two shots that I can show you here. One of them was neighbouring gravestones, an idea which I see Ian has already used.

    Anyway, here they are:-

    Bins in pairs along the front at Hunstanton was an obvious choice, but one pair had an interesting neighbour.

    Then, of course, there are some people who have to live next to the fun fairs and (in this case) go-kart tracks.

    and finally, as I said, neighbouring gravestones, this time in the parish churchyard shared with Binham Priory.

    I really like that first one, John – not so much for the ‘neighbouring’ bins (though they are a strong element in the picture), but more for that wonderfully coquettish cartoon woman above, who appears to be flirting with one or both of them! Delightfully surreal.

    The second one also has a surreal edge, the rope-lashed log fence evoking a Western ranch dropped incongruously into an English suburban estate. Perhaps pirates had a hand in it, as the Jolly Roger just visible on the left intriguingly hints.

    Two excellent British curios.

    You can see the draw of the seaside towns to photographers of  British eccentricities!

    I like your first photo best John. There’s a strong connection between the picture of the girl and two bins. it’s as though she’s smiling at them for keeping the place tidy. the second photo has contrasting neighbours with the quite houses and the lively colours of the Quad Bike arena. the two grave stones remind me of two old guys standing in conversation on a street corner.
